DC Chowhound will be heading up to NY tomorrow afternoon for a conference Thursday and Friday. I'll probably be on my own for dinner tomorrow night. I'm staying on West 49th Street, I think near 8th. Is there anything of note to check out in the vicinity, where a solo diner with a good book could enjoy a good meal?
I visit the city fairly regularly but usually stay on the east side. I like pretty much everything; cost isn't really an issue but someplace casual and comfortable would be best if anyone has any ideas.
Thanks in advance!
